Rally 4 wales launched

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

A cam­paign hop­ing to raise aware­ness over the fu­ture of rallying in Wales has been launched on so­cial me­dia.

The Rally 4 wales slo­gan and hash­tag has been coined to help raise aware­ness over the frag­ile position of Welsh rallying, as the Mo­tor Sports As­so­ci­a­tion and Nat­u­ral Re­source Wales are yet to agree a deal for the use of NRW forests for rallying.

The cur­rent deal ends on June 1, with a stale­mate in talks mean­ing the fu­ture of the sport in the re­gion – in­clud­ing Bri­tain’s round of the World Rally Cham­pi­onship – are un­der threat.

While devel­op­ments in the ne­go­ti­a­tions be­tween the MSA and NRW have been thin on the ground due to last week’s elec­tion in Wales, MN un­der­stands a num­ber of min­is­ters and gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials have raised their con­cerns over the loss of rallying to Wales with NRW.

Since the group’s Face­book was launched last week, it al­ready has over 3500 ‘likes’ as MN went to press and the page it­self has had over 30,000 views. You can join the cam­paign and read about fu­ture plans – in­clud­ing a pe­ti­tion – on its face­book (face­book.com/ral­ly­ing­means­busi­ness) and Twit­ter (@of­fi­cial­r4w) pages.
